The 23rd annual meeting of the Pargo association of Congre gational churches convened the church in this city on Tues day and Wednesday of this week. There was a good delegation present as will be seen from the list of pastors and represents tives given below. The conven tion began with a business ses sion at 11 o'clock Tuesday morn ing, a preliminary devotional service having first been held. Rev. Geo. H. Davies, of Hillsboro, was chosen moderator, the sec retary, Rev. E. H. Stickney, be ing a permanent officer. The afternoon program was thor oughly enjoyed by a large audi ence, the main discussion of the afternoon being upon the Sun day school. Rev. O. P. Champ lain, of Oriska. pointed out the advantages of the Bible school as A help to the knowledge of scrip tures. Mr. T. Robert Elwell, of Harwood, proved conclusively that no institution does more to promote the study of the Word of God in the homes. Taking up the subject in an historical way he traced the development of the Sunday school, and describ ed the inner workings of certain large city schools of the present, ,., ,, rrn: a_. day. These 20th century meth- ods are also applicable in many Attorney F. W. Ames, of May ville, gave, a very bright, inter esting talk on the subject of the Sunday school as a recruiting agency for the church. In the school of which he is superintend ent, many children have united with the church during the past winter. He said he would intro duce a few ''heresies" into his remarks, but apparently he car ried his audience with him, as no impeachment proceedings were begun. His description of the maiden teacher, who secured for her primary department every thing she wanted, "brought down the house." One brother suggest ed she might some day desire a man, in which case that should also be added to her equipment. A review of Prof. Geo. A. Coe's "Education in Religion and Morals," was then given, followed by an address on the "Christian College and the Church," by Prof. P. G. Knowl ton, Ph. D., of Fargo TUollege. In a part of this paper the profes sor took occasion to score the lack of preparation oftimes ap parent in the teaching of the Sunday school lesson. Such neglect explained in part the rea son for much of the non-attend ance and interest. The Doctor advocated the consolidation of Christian Colleges, wherever and whenever possible, and describ ed Fargo College as an umbrella —willing and glad to admit into Its shelter any sister institution Which might want to come ou of ,.v ma f. *opt ptoneet) ^wmwmwmmmuimwmmimi HOPE the cold. A lively discussion followed, participated in by many of the brethren. The evening session brought a church full of people to listen with much interest to the associ ation sermon, which was preach ed by Rev.. George Davies, of Hillsboro. He cautioned his hearers against thinking that they know all that is, to be known. He who thus thinketh knows nothing as he ought to know it. Our views of certain truths may sin, ,, change, but the facts of the Se'mption) Qf re anc[ of the smaller schools and such true, and nothing should cause use will doubtless be made of one to neglect salvation. Higher them in the near future. The new pastor-elect of the church at Hope, Rev. Mr. Hitch cock, who has just been gradua ted at Chicago Theological Semi nary, had charge of the devotion al service of the evening. ^iifciwSnpEu^' 1 DARGAIil mm BBFOR STEELE GO. BlTO FOR STEELE CO.

DIXON At the business session Wed nesday morning it was decided to hold the next convention at Harwood, and the minister'chos en to preach the annual sermon is Rev. S. E. Fish. A resolution was unanimously passed by the convention strongly urging the churches to call their ministers for indefinite periods rather than simply by the year. The latter out-of-date method promotes anxiety, sudden interruptions, anxiety and spiritual decline. All are glad that this ancient sys tem is being discarded else where. The reports of the var ious churches were received and indicated progress at many points. Superintendent G. J, Powell reported the expanding work with diminished income, of the Home Missionary society. Most of the churches have re ceived aid from the H.

The sermon was closely followed by appreciative hearers. Then followed the Communion service, administered by Rev. S. E. Fish of the Getchell church, and Rev. T. Rob't Elwell, of Harwood. The special music presented by home talent, was thoroughly enjoyed, the large choir aiding greatly in the singing. N. DAK. =35 by the Chicago Tribune CHICAGO, MILWAUKEE & ST.

The National society has a great debt on hand at the present time and therefore must curtail ex penses in this and other states. The churches here in North Da kota need to exemplify more and more the spirit of fellowship, and must do more to aid them selves. Supt. Stickney spoke of the army of people coming into North Dakota and the need of pressing forward in religious work among these thousands of new-comers. There are 500 miles of railroads being built in the state, and"40 or more towns are springing up so rapidly that the maps cannot keep up with them. There are places of sev eral hundred population without preaching services of any de scription, and many new oppor tunities for churches. The afternoon meeting was partly devoted to the women. The paper written by Mrs. F. M. Hubbell, of Mayville, was a very suggestive one. She was not present, but the essay was presented by another. A plea for the Mission band was made, af ter which Rev. G. B. Barnes, of yalley City, gave an address up on '"The American Board and the Rockefeller Gift." This topic naturally brought forth great in terest, and there seemed to be a division of opinion here, as else where, on the subject of "taint ed" money. "Why should our churches sustain Foreign Mis sions?" was a paper given by Rev. F. M. Hubbell, of Mayville. This essay was written some time ago and was published in leading Missionary journals—a prize essay which brought the writer a very neat sum. The final topic of the conven tion was presented by Attorney George Murray, of Sherbrooke, the theme being "Our Saloon." On the whole the association meeting was a success, though not as well attended as had been hoped. The local attendance was good and appropriate resolutions were passed thanking the good people of this city for their hospitality, the musicians for their help, and others for their 1 55** 5 *2! •'8? •ST* -5 substantial help in making the gathering successful.
